If you voluntarily sign up for Allyson Rice’s Allyson Wonderland newsletter or her Rice Cream Sundays blog, this site will record your email address, first name, and last name. You can refuse to supply personal information, but that will exclude you from certain related activities such as receiving newsletters, blogs, and free offers.

When subscribers click on a link in one of my emails or fill out a form, the site may record this information (see below how this information is used). Subscribers may unsubscribe at any time. You may ask for all your data to be deleted at any time.

Giveaways and Contests

If you enter a giveaway, your name and email address are collected. If you win a physical prize, you will be asked to give your name and physical address. This information will never be shared with or sold to outside parties.

Third-party links

Sometimes Allyson will include third-party links through email or on the website. These sites have their own policies and you should read those before subscribing or purchasing from them.

Use of the Website by Minors

All subscribers must be 15 or older or have the consent of a parent or guardian.

Potentially Triggering Content in the Novel

Parents and readers in general should also be aware that there is content of a more sensitive nature in The Key to Circus-Mom Highway (in the mother’s history as told in brief flashbacks), so please be aware of this in terms of readers under the age of 15, or anyone who might be triggered by the theme of sexual assault.
